Los Angeles, CA, October 08, 2013 - Celtic vocalist and singer-songwriter Shauna Burns is back with new music that will inspire and empower piano music lovers. With her past releases in 2009 and 2011, she has taken her new music in a new direction for her fans with her October 22 release of “Violet.”

After 2011’s “A Winter Gathering,” Burns feels the new release is “A new seed planted. Almost ready to bloom forth!” The direction taken for this project is focused on women and female empowerment and continues in the tone of her Celtic flare. “Violet,” follows the same structure from A Winter Gathering by having collaborations on the album performed by Burns and her husband, drummer/percussionist James Clark (who also co-produced Violet along with her previous releases), as well as Ryan Whyte Maloney on the guitar, Lindsey Springer on the cello, and Caroline Kemper on harp.

Violet is comprised of a total of 14 songs on the album. With new songs titled “Orchid” and “Portobello”, Burns has stated that this album will have a positive, uplifting spirit. Her first single, “Little Song,” from the album, is already receiving airplay from several radio stations worldwide.

It will express the strengths that all women should carry throughout life. Burns decided to make “Violet” the title track and the name of the album a major focal piece of the album because she feels Violet represents the concept of being free and independent.

The song, “Orchid” will be a vital piece of the album as well because it showcases a deeper level of vulnerability incorporating the cello, violin, and piano. The single, "Little Song" is a sweet introduction to the album that is about the possibility of the future and giving into what a new relationship brings. “Out with the old in with the new, letting go and jumping off the cliff of adventure.”
